Publisher's Summary

For a millennium, the Children of Amarid have served the people of Tobyn-Ser. Drawing upon the Mage-Craft, which flows from the psychic bond they forge with their avian familiars, the Mages of the Order have fulfilled their oaths by healing the injured and ill, repelling invasions by the land's enemies, and caring for the people in times of crisis. They are governed by laws handed down by Amarid, the first of their kind, who committed the Mage-Craft to the people's protection. Only once in a thousand years has a mage defied those laws. Theron, a contemporary of Amarid, sought to use his powers to gain wealth and glory. For that, he was punished, although not before he brought down a terrible curse on his fellow mages and all who would come after them. 

Recently, dark rumors have spread across Tobyn-Ser. Children of Amarid have been seen destroying crops, vandalizing homes, massacring men, women, and children. Have the mages forsaken their oaths? Has Theron returned from beyond death to take his vengeance? Or does Tobyn-Ser face a new threat, one it is ill-prepared and ill-equipped to face? 

With the land in turmoil and faith in the Mage-Craft badly shaken, it falls to Jaryd, a young mage with extraordinary potential but little knowledge of the power he wields, to find and destroy Tobyn-Ser's enemies before they destroy all he holds dear. 

Children of Amarid is the first volume of the LonTobyn Chronicle, David B. Coe's Crawford Award-winning debut series.

I think this is the start of a great series. I like the group of strong characters. The detail of the story is welcome.

Stories created like poetry.

A retelling of the early years of the Japanese invading the Philippine Islands, only it's magic with powers without too many tricks in their baskets, Vs a sophisticated Raiders; the gorilla measures defend their land against a superior force from outside.
it's local skills against technology, may the good guy Gorillaz win.
what this story May lack in action it will makes up for by good wordsmith ING. I've listened to this one twice just to hear the flow of words, it's surprising how much of the tale I missed in the first listening.

it's was okay.

At one time I was reading and listening at the same. I do not know if the narrator were the same book as I were. That's why I gave it low rating.

Very Enjoyable

I read this series years ago, and was really pleased when I saw that this book was available from Audible. I was a little dubious about the narrator at first, but he sort of got into the spirit of the story and did a reasonable job. I really, really hope that Audible are planning to release the other two books in this series, as it would be a real shame if this wonderful story was left only partly told

Awesome first part

I read this series many years ago and was happy to find them on audible as an audiobook. Coe has a very interesting idea on the use of magic and the combination with mechanisation in a different part of their world and how these two come together. The characters in the book are interesting and their development through the books is very well done. I like the politics and intrigue.

I had to get used at first to the narration of Pete Cross but I think he did an excellent job using his voice to make all the different character come to live. Highly recommended to any fantasy reader who likes a nice long trilogy with some sf in the mix.
